Monica Conyers Doesn't Wanna Go to Jail, Unlike Everyone Else

If you don't want to go to jail, Councilwoman Conyers, don't commit felonies or, at least, do not admit to committing felonies...


From NewsOne:

"Detroit City Councilwoman and admitted felon Monica Conyers went on television Tuesday to talk about council endorsements, hopes of staying out of jail and her plans to write a tell-all book.

And toward the end of her hour-long live TV show, Conyers apologized.

“To all of the residents of the city of Detroit, if I disappointed you, I apologize,” she said.

Just before the 3:30 p.m. airing, Conyers raced to the Highland Park studios of WHPR-TV (Channel 33), and stepped out of the city-owned Ford Crown Victoria in a dress with a strand of pearls and a light-colored blazer.

It was her first time addressing the public since pleading guilty Friday to a bribery charge. She started the show by telling viewers she wouldn’t talk about the case.

“I don’t want to get my judge mad at me, and I don’t want to go to jail,” she explained."

...Is the councilwoman aware people that are sorry can still go to jail?
